5.0 out of 5 stars Great follow up to Armando's 2nd book, 2 Feb 2008
This review is from: "Genesis": From One Fan to Another (Paperback)
This glossy book is mainly full of nothing but pictures, very little text, unlike "I Know What I Like", and "Evolution". Mostly it has updated pictures of the 2 tours following 1978. The "Duke" tour and the "Abacab" tour, where they first introduced Vari-Lights on stage. For die-hard fans, it's a real treat, because there isn't much text, just some great images of the band on the following 2 tours. But, for those of us still romantically involved with pre-1978 Genesis, it doen't offer a whole hell of a lot. Armando's talent shines just as brilliantly as ever through his wonderful eyes, but, personally, this came out during the time soon after the release of "Duke" (though Duke has some gems) and "Abacab", which I really hated. It's kind of a document of the "in-between" Genesis for the die-hards from the early days, and the newer and younger fans. It smoothly makes the slip into the (then) future of the band following "Abacab." Pick it up if you can find it, because Armando's pictures are still extraordinary. My problem with it is the timing - it came out when Genesis had scaled down their tours and, hence, their shows didn't carry very much weight to them. Less visuals, less goosebumps during their concerts. Of course, that all changed in later years, and fans of Abacab and onwards will enjoy this more than the old "die-hard's." Still, it's a wonderful book for your collection and I'm glad that I snagged a first edition copy in Berkeley during the first year I moved to San Francisco. Incredible pictures in here, to be sure. I think that all Genesis fans, young and old will like this book.
